Deciding on the professionals who will have full control over how your wedding is captured can be daunting. Videographers and photographers play an important role in how your wedding is remembered by yourselves, your friends, and your family. It’s their job to capture the little moments, the special words, and the atmosphere of the day, without disrupting the ceremony or reception. They have to be everywhere, with an eye on everything, while simultaneously being invisible. It is absolutely vital that the photographer and videographer can work together smoothly, in order to prevent disruptions on the special day. This is why it is best to choose a videographer and photographer from the same company, rather than separately.
Shooting a wedding is like performing intricate choreography. If the videographer and photographer are not familiar with each other’s movements, they can get in the way of each other’s shots, block each other’s angles, and miss that special, once-in-a-lifetime moment. When the photographer and videographer come from the same company, they have already worked together, and therefore understand each other’s working processes. They have perfected their communication skills, and already know exactly how to work together to capture each moment precisely how it should be. By choosing a videographer and photographer from the same company, you can be sure that they will feel confident in each other’s abilities, and therefore more comfortable on the job. Like in any job, the best work is done with a trusted partner by one’s side.
Another reason why it is important to hire a team from the same company, is that it takes the stress out of organising separate shooting times. As the videographer and the photographer will be comfortable working together, they can decide themselves how to best shoot the bride and groom getting ready, and all the wedding preparations. This will ensure that you have the right balance between photo and video, and perfect coverage of both the bride and the groom’s preparations, even though they will be happening simultaneously in separate rooms.
The most important aspect of hiring a videographer and photographer from the same company is the fact that they will respect each other’s work, and each other’s style. You are hiring a team, rather than two individual professionals. This respect is absolutely vital in promoting creativity, and therefore, in producing a stunning wedding album, and breathtaking video.
